This thread started by OW over a year ago. The State Broadcaster decided to examine the background to the issue last night. About ten f*cking years too late.

at the risk of repeating myself , LLs with well located gaffs ie walking distance to town / shops etc are happy with this situation.
i am thinking of joining FF.
they seem to have my best interests at heart.
